Vetting Status: high
[Meaning someone] going through.[1] "[...] using a chariot and progressing by the public road to reach the seventh."[2]
Greek Original:
*proko/ptonta: dierxo/menon. o)xh/mati kexrhme/non kai\ dia\ th=s lewfo/rou proko/ptonta katalamba/nein to\ e(/bdomon.
[1] The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given, is present active participle of proko/ptw, masculine accusative singular. This figurative sense of it is noted in LSJ s.v.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable. Without context, we cannot determine what "the seventh" is.
